    Great job, Glen - the pinning looks great and I really like the look of the butt end - a nice twist on what is quickly becoming the "classic re-scale shape." The center pin also adds a ton of class!

    Way to go!

    Thank you for all the kind comments, I'll try and answer some of the questions. The design was a total freehand, the blade came to me with out factory scales, so I just went with what I saw in my mind.... I love the Gabon/ Gaboon Ebony to work with also Dan, but I didn't notice the walnutty smell The finish is just a simple wipe on Poly, it's the prep that makes the difference, the wood is glass, and brown paper bag burnished, before the Poly goes on, then rubbed after each of the first 3 coats, then about another 10 very thin coats go on after that.....

    Ahh, yes, the old burnishing trick, eh Glen? I've got a W&B coming my way tonight, so I figure I'll give it a go with the wipe-on poly when I get around to making some scales...I just might be knocking on you PM door for some tricks though, if you don't mind!
